The Corner Creperie

This may be hands down my favorite restaurant in Omaha - and it's brand new, so go check it out!!

The Corner Creperie is located on the southeast corner of 24th & Chicago - that's just north of Joslyn Art Museum at 24th & Dodge.  

I saw an article announcing this new place on the food review pages of the Omaha World Herald - I immediately headed there for lunch.  I've since been back another time and I just can't stop thinking about these crepes!  

Best news?!  They can do almost their entire menu gluten free!!  Savory crepes, dessert crepes, and a couple of their soups.  Also this may be the only place on earth that doesn't charge extra because you have a food disability.  Bonus.

The service was beyond spectacular.  I went in for the second time about two weeks after my first and they remembered me!  Now that's customer service.  A husband and wife team own this restaurant and they make you feel right at home.  The place is bright and cheery, super clean, and best of all friendly!

Both times I went with people who were more than willing to have gluten free crepes so we could order different ones and share.  I'll have to admit the second time I went with my mom and we ordered exactly what I had the first time because I wanted her to see how incredibly amazing it tasted!

I had a root crepe (roasted beets!) and a grain crepe (quinoa & chickpeas).  Honestly I cannot explain how delicious these were - I've never eaten beets before and now I love them.  The quinoa and chickpeas was quite a surprise, the texture is incredible and I would have never thought of using them together.

The dessert crepes were absolutely delicious - I couldn't believe how the "spice" crepe melted in your mouth and was so wonderfully flavored with just cinnamon & sugar.  Also you MUST try the "citrus" - I've never had lemon curd so perfect.  

If you're out west or in Lincoln - this is worth the trip downtown.  Please please go try them!
